can you overclock an i5-10600? (not an i5-10600k)

i know the "k" series are unlocked, but i was wondering if there is any way to still overclock it safely.

There is BCLK OC'ing (baseclock overclocking), but that really has not been relevant in the last couple years. It has also proven to be kind of unstable in former years.

So by all intents and purpose, no the i5 10600 (non-K) cannot overclock.

Sorry if my post seemed rude, that is never my intention.

Do this with an AsRock board in addition to the 102.98 bclk overclock and you'll actually have pretty much the same experience as of the unlocked processor.

Wouldn't intel get rid of this with a future firmware update? They seem to think true overclocking is something worth paying a premium for...getting K performance for free doesn't seem like something they'd let continue...read asrock's fine print, they say this feature might not last..BCLK overclocking should remain an option, although you sacrifice some stability.
